At first she started off with showing me 2 super quick looks that could be done with the HK Too Dolly palette on each eye, at my request. I wasn't too impressed with those mostly because I didn't like the placement of the colours. The payoff sucked too because she wasn't using a primer (and never did in the end). So in the end I just requested a simple smoky eye (and no lipstick because I knew I'd eat it off before I even got to take pictures).
What she used:
- Yogurt (matte pink) from Too Dolly quad all over lid
- Stately Black (grey) on outer corner and blended into crease
- more Stately Black to line top lid, and outer corners of the bottom lashes.
- some mascara...don't know which. She did not curl lashes though.
- MSF Natural in Medium
- Tahitian Sand Beauty Powder on cheeks to "give a glow".
Then I added Fun & Games blush and Cutester lipstick. Those two products btw are super sheer - great for work makeup, but they both barely show up in pictures below. Fun & Games blush is a warm sheer peach. Cutester lipstick is a sheer coral peach, but on me it gives just a touch of shine. Also used some Emote blush to contour.
Haha, I know I look totally thrilled the makeover results in the above picture but it wasn't that. My expression was mostly due to fatigue from less than 4 hours sleep.
I must say I loved her blending skills. All she really used for the crease shade was the 217 and 222. I can't blend dark colours with for the life of me, which was also why I wanted her to do a smoky look. The outer corners could be extended a bit more, but overall I thought she did a good job. Before I'd always heard horror stories about makeovers gone bad because the MAs did not know how to do Asian eyes, but my experience was quite pleasant.
I noticed though that MSF in Medium is too pink for me. It may not show in photos but if you were to see me in real life the difference is obvious. A pity because it seems like a nice product. I don't think there is a yellow toned version of Medium, is there?
Later that day we went out for Korean food. Originally I had planned to go to Rodney's Oyster Bar because the bf loves oysters. However that night it was super cold so we ended up hitting Koreatown instead for hearty food. Seriously though, Koreans know how to make good winter food :P All the soupy spicy foods really keep you warm.
We ordered this beef bulgolgi combo - which I don't even know what the exact menu name was.
Raw seasoned beef slices & onion awaiting their fate:
It came with a spicy seafood tofu stew as well:
All in all, a very filling and satisfying end to the day :)
